Going the Extra Mile: Adding the Finishing Touches

A client in Soho approached us with a unique request: they had already completed the sanding process themselves and needed our assistance with the oiling. While this wasn’t a service we typically provided separately, we were intrigued by the challenge. We inspected the quality of their DIY sanding and, despite their enthusiasm, we discovered a rollercoaster of belt marks around the edges, corners left untouched, and some edges that hadn’t been attended to at all. It quickly became clear that we needed to roll up our sleeves and start the sanding process from scratch.

To add a touch of humour to the situation, we found that the client had filled the gaps with white wood filler. Fortunately, our chosen finish, Magic Oil Pure, worked its wonders in camouflaging the filler. We knew it wouldn’t be as noticeable as it would have been with a clear oil finish.

Choosing the Perfect Finish: Pure Oil vs. Clear Oil

When it came time to select the final product, we wanted our client to make an informed decision. We encouraged them to envision the outcome by splashing water on the sanded floor. This would give them a glimpse of what it would look like with a clear oil finish. However, we also wanted to highlight the unique allure that our Magic Oil Pure from Pallmann would bring to the table. With this option, the floor would take on a slightly darker and more captivating appearance, enhancing the overall ambience of the space.

After careful consideration, the client was captivated by the idea of a nude, more enchanting floor. We assured them that the results would be nothing short of remarkable, and we were excited to bring their vision to life.

A Stunning Transformation

As we meticulously applied the Pure oil to the floor, we marvelled at the stunning transformation taking place before our eyes. Pure oil elegantly embraced the wood, adding depth and enhancing its natural beauty.

However, it’s worth noting that this particular floor had very little wood veneer remaining. With this in mind, we kindly advised the client against any further sanding. Instead, we emphasized the importance of proper maintenance and care to preserve the floor’s newfound splendour.

A Quick Guide to Maintaining Oiled Floors: Preserving Beauty and Durability

Oiled floors exude timeless elegance, enhancing the natural beauty of the wood while providing durability and protection. To ensure your oiled floors maintain their stunning appearance for years to come, proper maintenance is essential. Follow this quick guide to keep your oiled floors looking their best.

1. Regular Cleaning: The Foundation of Floor Care

Start by removing loose dirt and debris using a soft broom or vacuum with a brush attachment. Avoid using a vacuum with a rotating brush as it may scratch the floor’s surface. For a deeper clean, use a microfiber mop slightly dampened with a specially formulated wood floor cleaner. Avoid using excessive water or harsh cleaning agents, as they can strip the protective oil finish.

2. Spills and Stains: Swift Action is the Key

Accidents happen, but quick action can prevent stains on your oiled floor. Immediately blot up any spills with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel. For stubborn stains, use a damp cloth or sponge with a mild soap solution and gently rub the affected area. Be sure to dry the spot thoroughly afterwards to avoid moisture penetrating the oil finish.

3. Periodic Maintenance: Renewing the Oil Finish

Over time, the oil finish on your floor may wear down, requiring rejuvenation. How often you should perform this maintenance depends on factors such as foot traffic and the specific oil used. As a general guideline, consider renewing the oil finish every 1 to 3 years.

To renew the oil finish, follow these steps

a. Clean the floor thoroughly to remove any dirt or residue. b. Lightly sand the surface with fine-grit sandpaper to create a smooth and receptive surface. c. Apply a fresh coat of oil using a soft cloth or applicator, following the manufacturer’s instructions. d. Allow the oil to penetrate and dry completely before walking on the floor.

4. Preventive Measures: Shielding Your Floors

Prevention is key to maintaining the beauty and longevity of your oiled floors. Consider implementing these preventive measures:

a. Place doormats at entryways to trap dirt, sand, and moisture before they reach your floors. b. Use furniture pads or felt protectors under heavy furniture to prevent scratches and indentations. c. Avoid wearing high heels or shoes with sharp, abrasive soles on the floor. d. Use rugs or mats in high-traffic areas to minimize wear and tear.

5. Avoid Common Pitfalls: What to Steer Clear Of

To protect your oiled floors, steer clear of the following pitfalls:

a. Excessive moisture: Avoid wet mopping or leaving spills unattended, as excessive moisture can damage the oil finish and seep into the wood. b. Harsh cleaning agents: Stay away from abrasive cleaners, ammonia-based products, or wax-based polishes, as they can harm the oil finish. c. Scrubbing brushes or abrasive tools: Opt for soft, non-abrasive cleaning tools to prevent scratches or damage to the floor’s surface.

Preserving the Beauty, Enjoying the Benefits

By following these simple maintenance steps, you can ensure that your oiled floors retain their captivating beauty and exceptional durability. Regular cleaning, prompt spill cleanup, periodic oil renewal, preventive measures, and avoiding common pitfalls will keep your floors looking their best for years to come. Embrace the warmth and elegance of oiled floors while basking in the satisfaction of a well-maintained and long-lasting investment in your home.
